Obituary for John Brunner

John Brunner
JOHN HOWARD BRUNNER, 82, was born April 15, 1935, in Denver, Colorado and died January 2, 2018. He is survived by his wife Patricia; sons William (Margaret), Mark (Kimberly), and Paul (Dianna); nine grandchildren Matthew, William, Annie, Kayleigh, Kimbri, Kari, Keaton, Grace, and Faith, brother-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, and many friends.

John was a teacher in the Denver Public Schools for 34 years: five years at Baker Junior High, 27 years at West High School. Trained in Industrial Education at CSC in Greeley, John taught metal shop for 17 years but completed his final 17 years as a Teacher-Coordinator in Industrial Cooperative Education. Teaching was a perfect career for John. His students were important to him, and “Mr. Brunner” easily held their respect. He was known as “the teacher who never had a bad kid.” After retiring, John turned his attention full-time to the family’s 35-acre farm in Longmont, a farm he and his sons and a nephew had built together in 1978. He became vitally interested in water, serving many years as president of Boulder and Left Hand Irrigation Company, and four terms as a Board member of Left Hand Water District.

John and his wife Pat have been members of Calvary Church since 1983 and regard Calvary’s congregation as their precious family in Christ Jesus.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at Calvary Church on January 27, 2018 at 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Upon the Rock Camping Ministry, P.O. Box 1007, La Veta, CO 81055.
